The Price of the RTX 3060 Starts at $ 330 with EVGA; PNY Will be the Most Expensive

GIGABYTE and EVGA will be the brands that will offer the RTX 3060 at the most competitive price, seen the RTX 3000 listing from Newegg and BestBuy. Zotac will not be the cheapest brand of this NVIDIA GeForce, as we were used to.

The prices that these RTX 3060 will have as controversial for the leaked benchmarks, as for the mining controversy, are revealed. Apparently, we will have custom graphics cards that will start at a fair price, as well as other models that will exceed $ 600. Translated into euros, all these amounts go up a bit, especially when the price is high.

NVIDIA RTX 3060 launches starting at $ 330

BestBuy and Newegg are the online stores that launched the graphics cards first, which are located in the United States. Interestingly, the cheapest models will be offered by GIGABYTE and EVGA from $ 330, but only in the case of Newegg. If we go to BestBuy, the EVGA XC starts at $ 390.

The rest of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 is from Zotac, ASUS, MSI, and PNY, which will offer custom models above € 400 on both portals. All the media were aiming for an inflated price of this launch, but it seems that the measure of limiting the GPU for mining could have stopped this phenomenon.

In theory, distributors and stores sell launch GPUs at their original price, but we already see a markup from there. On the other hand, assemblers claim that it is impossible to offer the NVIDIA recommended retail price at the moment because of the fees, tax, and profit margins.

The source points out that there will be a model with the RRP that NVIDIA announced, but the brand cannot be said yet. In addition, "the green giant" has lifted the embargo on reviews, so soon the first graphics will be tested to see how far it is from the RTX 3060 Ti.

Specifically, we show the broken down price of the RTX 3060 custom.

Regarding its performance, it was initially noted that it would compete with the RX 6700 XT, but it may fall short to compete with it. As we saw in some 3DMark benchmarks, it does not seem to hit 100 FPS at 1440p with Ultra graphics settings in the latest titles.

You will soon know what FPS this GPU handles.
